 Three weeks after the withdrawal, the United States will test-fire medium-range missiles, followed by big moves, Russia: Im too difficult.

Not only that, but American officials have also released quite generously the video of the missile test. American media say that the cruise missile tested has not been named for the time being, but from the video footage, there is no doubt that it is a Tomahawk missile.

As we had previously expected, the Tomahawk missile was moved directly from the warship to the ground, using the MK41 vertical unit, and the US military said that the missile hit the target 500 kilometers away accurately.

After all, the Tomahawk missile can easily hit more than 1500 kilometers. It has proved its accuracy in countless actual battles. Moving to the ground once is a simple thing.

But its significance is extremely far-reaching, because this is the first time that the United States test-fired land-based cruise missiles after the signing of the China Guidance Treaty. It can be said that this is a strong statement made by the United States to withdraw from the Treaty - withdrawal is not a joke, I am playing with the truth.

U.S. land-based cruise missile test is also generous release of video, its ambition is not hiding at all.

Subsonic cruise missiles are just an appetizer, and the United States will do more in the future.

After all, previously tied to the treaty, the United States had to sneak around with some sidekicks. Now that there is no restraint, we can exert ourselves to the fullest extent.

Previously, we had envisioned some future development directions of the United States, such as the expansion of short-range missiles, the re-activation of Pan Xing, the transformation of target missiles into missiles and so on. To be honest, these ideas are too petty. For medium-range missiles, the United States will certainly not be so petty fuss, after all, 9102, medium-range missiles abandoned for many years, no historical burden, just give the United States all the chance to come back, so the development of new missiles is logical.

Hypersonic missiles are an ideal option.

Not long ago, the U.S. Air Force unveiled the AGM-183A hypersonic missile, which is about the same size as the Russian dagger missile, using the boost-glide principle, with a maximum speed of Mach 20.

Shortly after the test, the U.S. Navy announced that it would replace the Burke class destroyer with a larger pendulum to accommodate the wind of hypersonic missiles.

If a hypersonic missile can board a ship, then landing is logical.

The B-52H Strategic Bomber carries a picture of AGM-183A flying in the air.

At present, the U.S. Air Force is the most energetic force for hypersonic missiles, including AGM-183A, a total of three models are under development; as a third-class army, it is not surprising to develop another model. On August 21, the U.S. Army Secretary publicly stated that the United States was studying the feasibility of loading ballistic missile warheads into light hypersonic missiles, which could be conventional warheads, nuclear warheads or even multiple nuclear warheads.

The most intense reaction of the US missile test is, of course, Russia.

Russian officials unanimously condemned the United States. Putin expressed deep disappointment at the test launch of the land-based cruise missile by the United States. More Russian officials denounced the United States as brazen.

But the statement by the Russian Vice Foreign Minister was interesting. He said that if the United States took the lead in deploying medium-range missiles outside the territory of the United States, Russia would be accompanied. But it also argues that Russia will not be provoked by the United States to engage in an expensive arms race with the United States.

During the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union both stockpiled large quantities of weapons. After the Cold War, Russia either sealed up or disassembled many weapons, and some were used to repay debts.

Not to engage in an arms race with the United States is a lesson Russia learned from the collapse of the Soviet Union. At that time, the Soviet Unions GDP was the second highest in the world, exceeding 60% of the U.S. GDP. Its territory was vast and rich in goods, with millions of troops, tens of thousands of tanks and the largest number of nuclear warheads on the planet.

Such a powerful Soviet Union eventually fell to the ground in the arms race of the cold war. Although Russia is still the largest country in the world after its division, it is far from the past.

Today, Russias GDP is only a fraction of that of the United States. According to United Nations data, Russias GDP in 2018 is 6.5% of that of the United States.

Russias economic situation can be described as embarrassment. 2018 is a better year in recent years, with an economic growth rate of 2.3%, and even a recession of 3.7% in 2015. So Russias current economy is totally ineligible for an arms race with the United States.

But it is unrealistic for Russia to let the United States guide its development.

Just as in the cold war, the arms race between the Soviet Union and the United States was inevitable.

Because there are no opportunistic tactics in big country competition, the tactics of both sides can be seen from each other, and military power is always the first.

If it cannot be upgraded equivalently in armaments, it will soon be left behind. Once the generation difference is formed, it will not even be qualified to fight with its opponents in the future.

Iraq during the Gulf War is an excellent example.

Due to the pressure of the Five Generations Aircraft in the United States, Russia has no money to drag on India to build the Su 57, which is unfortunately not appreciated so far.

So the United States has created F22, F35, and the Russian Ra sponsored the construction of the Soviet 57; the United States has developed into a system of UAVs, the Russian heavy stealth version of the Hunter UAV, the United States Ford aircraft carrier launching, Russia overhauled the aircraft carrier...

So if the United States wants to launch a medium-range missile, Russia will have to respond. This is a conspiracy.

Once the United States gains an advantage in medium-range missiles, it is tantamount to another killers mace, while Russia will fall into the trap of the United States as long as it fights.

Russians are disassembling nuclear missiles from silos.

After the signing of the China Guidance Treaty, the United States would abolish 859 missiles and the Soviet Union 1 752 missiles. Of course, there would be no redeployment of as many missiles as in the cold war period today, but for Russia, even a small number of missiles would be a heavy burden.

The price of medium-range missiles is quite expensive. In addition to missile systems, there are also supporting facilities and personnel. As long as they are equipped, these will become fixed expenditure, which is very difficult for Russia to bear.

So, should or shouldnt, its hard.

Of course, the United States restarted medium-range missiles, but also for China, the United States clearly proposed to deploy guidance in the Asia-Pacific region, but from the current response of all countries, the deployment of guidance is not very cold.

As an Asian ally of the United States, Japan and South Korea have deployed land-based Aegis and Sade anti-missile systems under tremendous pressure, but medium-range missiles? Anyone has to weigh up. The picture shows the land-based Aegis deployed by Japan.

Both Australia and South Korea have made it clear that they will not deploy medium-range missiles at home, and Japan certainly does not want to deploy them at home, because that would completely offend China and Russia. Although the Japanese government has no autonomy, but considering the close economic and trade relations between China and Japan, I believe that the Japanese government will certainly do well. Measure.

It is more likely that Guam and Saipan are the United States Overseas Territories. Guam itself has an important overseas base in the United States. It deploys strategic bombers and attack nuclear submarines, as well as air-launched cruise missiles. The range of medium-range missiles deployed in Guam can also be satisfied.

However, Guam covers only 544 square kilometres and is isolated in the Pacific Ocean. It is very far away from the mainland of the United States. Even if deployed, its scale is very limited, which makes it difficult to form an advantage over China.

Americas plans in the Asia-Pacific region are doomed not to go as smoothly as it expected.
